Video: Brewer endorses Romney

posted at 11:30 am on February 26, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer made her much-anticipated endorsement in the Republican presidential nomination contest earlier today on NBC’s Meet the Press — and it went to Mitt Romney, who once had a huge lead in her state but has struggled to maintain an edge over Rick Santorum. Will Brewer’s pick help Romney lock up the winner-take-all state on Tuesday?

Brewer, in Washington, D.C. for the National Governors Association Winter Meeting, said Romney had “carried the day” and that she was going to work on his behalf.

“I have had my debate there in Arizona, and I have looked over all the wonderful people that have put themselves up for nomination, and I have decided that I am going to publicly endorse Mitt Romney,” Brewer said. “I think he’s the man that carried the day, and I am going to get out there and work as hard as I know how to make sure that he wins Arizona and work in other places of our country to see that he wins those places, too.”

Brewer cited his business prowess and past political history as her reasons for the endorsement.

“I think that he handles himself very, very well, but more than that I think he has the pro-business background and he has that political history that I think that he would serve America the best of all the candidates,” she said. “So it was a difficult decision, but I think Mitt is by far the person that can go in and win.”

Gubernatorial endorsements haven’t exactly been game-changers thus far in the primaries. Nikki Haley endorsed Romney in South Carolina, only to see Newt Gingrich beat him by double digits. Rick Perry endorsed Gingrich after Perry withdrew in South Carolina, and Gingrich lost Florida by almost as much as he won South Carolina, and trails badly in Texas at the moment. In Michigan, Romney got Rick Snyder’s endorsement on February 15th, but the best that can be said about it is that it didn’t move the polling.

Arizona might be different, however. Brewer has had a stronger relationship with grassroots conservatives in her state, especially after taking on Barack Obama over immigration enforcement. She carries the kind of credibility on the Right at the moment that Romney desperately needs. Her endorsement will also reinforce the subtext of the election for Republicans that the main issues for November will be the economy and Obama himself. Brewer’s standing on a national basis will also help Romney in other states besides Arizona, which is almost certainly not the case with Snyder and Haley.

The polls have already begun a swing back to Romney after Santorum’s mediocre performance on Wednesday, and this may help Romney build momentum in the final two days before Tuesday’s primaries in Arizona and Michigan. If he wins both, Santorum’s hopes for a Super Tuesday surprise will begin to dim. And don’t be surprised if people start talking about a Romney-Brewer ticket if that comes to pass.

Update: A commenter corrects me, rightly, that Perry endorsed Gingrich after his own withdrawal in South Carolina but before the primary. I’ve edited that passage for greater accuracy.

If Ann Romney had lived with an abortion doctor I would have pointed it out. If if wasn’t tactful, I get it, but unborn life is important to me.

As for IP addresses – it’s misleading to assume they mean anything:
Accessing services anonymously

It’s incredibly simple to make it appear that you are somewhere other than where you are. e.g. a lot of folks use it to watch videos that they cannot otherwise access from their actual IP location.

That’s because what you said is so feasible. I thought you were serious because it’s fully what I expect to happen with Mitt on any issue according to what’s politically best for him.

And I did see someone else–I don’t think it was you–ask about the same thing the other day. I’ve also read about how scripted Mitt can be, yet he comes out with oddities like the trees and cars and lakes.

Yep, went through that myself. Ol’ Chuckie just plain went off the deep end, forgot that 9/11 happened and returned to his leftist whacko roots. Shame too, it was a fun blog back in the day. In hindsight, it was fun because of the posters, Chuckie had little to do with its success. I think they have open registration over there almost all the time now, and a very small number of people who comment. Chuck pretty much took a blog with real value and sent it spiraling into the crapper.

AZfederalist on February 26, 2012 at 8:02 PM

He actually began purging the site of his own old comments/articles. Creepy. Fun to watch Ace mess with him though. For a while Chuckles apparently had a “Hot Air” quote of the day where he would pull out what he considered the most racist or outrageous comments from here and post them at his site. Pretty sure most of the time is was LGF sockpuppets doing the commenting.

Friends, off to watch a movie with the wife. So good night. For those who pray, say a prayer for the family of Al Bazierre.

Al was a friend and fellow Army Aviator who succumbed to cancer this week after years of very hard fighting. He was a Viet Nam war veteran and a mentor to younger aviators like me after he retired and became an instructor of the 2B38 Black Hawk simulator at Simmons AAF here at Ft. Bragg. He as we say, “Knew what right looked like.” And he knew how to teach in a way that broke barriers with people having problems learning. Especially instruments.

You may hear the folks talk about him when the reality show about Guns Plus in Spring Lake NC airs. He spent the last few years of his life working there part time too.

RIP Al.

It is fun and many times even informative to read the postings, however, to continuously see trite nonsense posted by the

Gov. Brewer is a great gal…but she sat there and Gov. Brown walked all over her, she sat on her hands as Brown was praising Obama for his energy plans, she gave a quick retort on immigration, but was immediately taken down by Brown saying he thought the Dream Act, and the giving of scholarships to “undocumented” immigrants was just super keen, she said nothing…He stated his borders are fine, she sat mum, despite the fact that his borders are fine because their are more walls and fences than any other state.
She basically does what Mitt does, she gives a good speech, but retreats under fire…she was pathetic as Brown touted how effective Obama’s mass transit ideas will be…good grief, she might as well be one of those goofs they put behind the president when he speaks, she just sat there.
Yeah, I think I know why she chose Mitt, no waves, retreat under fire, birds of a feather…

I show up here sometimes and say that there are a lot of great posts and people mock me.

No resolution of Gov. Rom not being genuine. No good jokes about the empty stadium.

No talk about Newt who is my only other option and I don’t think he has an AMG Mercedes but should hop on a D3 Caddy. That would get attention. And how could I donate to get Newt to review Brew and Pat’s books?

Saint Orum turning us into Northern Mexico with no abortion (contraception) and wild Catholic immigration from nations we haven’t even heard of. Also check the local maternity clinics. A black lady and I were terrified. He will also put gays in solitary or something and if he does I will put Michele Obama back in power.

There are all these west coast women who think they are gay and I don’t think they are..there is a public interview on Jennifer Aniston and I know nothing private about her at all but there is this other one who I couldn’t see locked up…LOL

She is a local pol, fighting for some local issues and slightly over her head. Want her to pull out a Uzi?

BTW, where is Governor Palin?

And didn’t Newt (Whom everyone should love for one reason or another sit with the Princess of evil on TV?) and Gov. Sarah run with Juan McLame?

Oh, I just have these strange memories.

Nobody is ever really pure enough for us true believers.

Hot Air gets money from the number of visits. I’m sure they’re fine with it. Plus it’s great to see a few of the old commenters battle it out here.

Ditto here Chief.

Hey, to each their own. I happen to not appreciate “trite nonsense”. Good conversation or “battles” as you put it can
be interesting, however, come on! Reading some of the ridiculous
scategory postings is nauseating.

As much as I adore Jan Brewer, she took the politically expedient position. I’m not a fan of pols who do that, especially regarding such crucial matters. You either have core principles or you don’t. If you do and you sacrifice them on the altar of what is best for you, then, well, we just disagree.

She’s just another in the long line of alleged conservatives who are obsessed with “electability”.

I have been a huge supporter of Gov. Palin since 2008. I was also
annoyed with her for how she handled the announcement of her
not running.

However, the more I see these clowns in our government and the
ridiculous behavior of our candidates, the insane pro Obama
media attempts at “gotchas”, the stupidity of potential voters
and their rush to support a candidate, then a rush en masse to
the next candidate, etc. I do not blame her one bit for staying out.

Right now, although I support the intellectual candidate, Gingrich,
with all his warts, etc. it would be okay to have
Romney win. Even though it would be somewhat annoying to read
“we won, told you so” postings from his moronic supporters because they are so juvenile.

Palin is right about not annointing a candidate too soon. Its important to let the primary go on long enough to vet the candidates. However, it is turning into trashing the candidates on a personal level, ignoring their records.
Also, I don’t think we want the republican primary for president to last so long that we have a brokered convention, that we don’t have time to vet other candidates who are running in critical elections. It is important to have time to pay attention to these.
I am unsure of the time frame for all of this, however, think
we need all summer to vet the candidates for house and senate.

If someone wins within the next few months (is that doable?), then we can turn our attention to the house and senate elections. Real change in our government needs to come from these two bodies of government.

Our president won’t do it for us.

I like Brewer’s spunk, but her Romatron endorsement is a HUGE dissapointment

I thought the conversation was pretty informative. Being a new guy here, your writing doesn’t stand out as stuff I’ve read before. So its hard to tell if your just carping over someones stuff you just don’t like. Sounds a bit petty. You can read or not read what you want can’t you?
